I was one of those young girls who did not talk about marriage. But it is totally different when you fall deeply in love. You also feel like that, the next point of your life, you want to get into that. That happened very naturally with Ranbir."
Right from the beginning, Alia mentioned that she has a crush on Ranbir Kapoor and has often times expresses desire to marry him. When asked about the same, the Highway star said, "I was saying it like a regular cute girl, like a fan girl. I was not chasing Ranbir on the side or thinking about how I can plot to get Ranbir. None of that was happening."
Earlier this year, she gave a smash hit with the film Gangubai Kathiawadi, marking her first with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Working with the director had been dream for the actress. "When I joined the movies, the understanding was that Sanjay Leela Bhansali works with actors at their prime. When they are at their prime, he works with them. So I was like one day I will reach my prime and work with him," she shared.
I am a first-row movie watcher, Chandan Cinema. I have grown up watching all the No.1's like Coolie No. 1 and all the other 1's. I used to see Govinda dancing and I used to be like I want to be Govinda," she said stressing her love for movies growing up.
